Sneak Peak - Olyvia Green's Portrait Video

Kathryn Gonzales

Late last year, Storyhouse had the honor of interviewing Mrs. Olyvia Green, Pease Elementary's first Black teacher. We turned her story into 30-minute feature which will be airing on the AISD network tonight (Feb. 24th) at 8:30, Thursday Feb. 26th at 9:30pm and Friday Feb. 27th at 9:30pm. Tune in to AISD-TV (Channel 22) on Time Warner and Grande Systems, aisd.tv website, on Roku (private channel code: aisd.tv) and on the channel 99 menu system on U-verse.

We're also excited to honor her with a special screening of her Portrait Video (a 10min version of her story) which she will see for the first at the school's African American Heritage Assembly.

Here is a special sneak peak of her video! 

 

Storyhouse Interviews First Teacher to Integrate Pease Elementary

Kathryn Gonzales

In December, Storyhouse interviewed Olyvia Green of Austin, Texas as part of a collaboration with Pease Elementary and the Austin Independent School District to honor her many contributions. Mrs. Green was the first teacher to integrate Pease in 1969 and taught there for 26 years. Storyhouse was stunned to learn that her story had not yet been captured and jumped at the opportunity to forever preserve her memories in the form of a Portrait Video. The interview will air on the AISD channel and Mrs. Green will be honored at an African American Heritage Month assembly where we will screen her Portrait Video. Mrs. Green's family and several historic centers will receive an edited version of her full interview for their family archives. 

We'll keep you posted with updates as the project progresses!
